"Why the hell did I think some guy was following me?"
"Disasters seem to follow Bret Lamplighter around the Caribbean. His simple assignment of follow-the-emeralds changes drastically when he has to tackle government corruption, terrorists run amuck, and elegant organized crime lords. Author C. J. Westwick throws both his hero and his audience into situations as immediate as the day's headlines and starts shooting.
So, grab a bag of techno-goodies and a gorgeous French secret agent; you're heading out to the beach and on into the jungle. Bret Lamplighter's looking for the emeralds. The killers are looking for Bret. The clock is ticking. . .
At least Bret thinks it's just a clock." -- from the back cover
This book was an engaging thriller with lots of twists and turns. I liked the sense of being in the thick of adventure with Bret and his friends, especially the scenes on the boat in Colombia.
